Fix Editor-in-Chief Maer Roshan appeared on CNN Headline News last night, to discuss Russell Armstrong's suicide. On Monday The Fix published an exclusive interview by Roshan with the much-maligned Real Housewives husband, an alleged wife beater and one-time financial felon who became a passionate advocate for recovery in recent years. Armstrong, the child of an alcoholic father who supported his sister through her meth addiction, and quietly paid for the treatment of several other addicts, approached Roshan about investing in The Fix just six weeks before his his death. On the show, Roshan pointed out that while Armstrong may have been no saint, reality T.V. doesn't always encourage good behavior, noting that many mshows ply their subjects with alcohol and radically edit  segments to achieve maximum drama.
